Please note: Applicants must be available on Thursday evenings
Founded in fall 2009 and now in its sixth year, the Grey Art Gallery’s Student Friends Committee (SFC) is composed of a dozen members, each representing a different NYU art-related department. The SFC meets once a month during the academic term, on Thursday nights, to learn about the Grey’s exhibitions and public programs, and to brainstorm on strategies to help attract NYU students, both undergraduate and graduate, to the Grey’s exhibitions, programs, and other events. The first meeting is scheduled for Thursday, October 22, 6:30–7:30/8:00 pm. Refreshments are served at the meetings, which may also include walkthroughs of the Grey’s current exhibition/s, previews of upcoming shows, and guest speakers. The SFC also serves as a sounding board, to help the Grey better serve the needs of NYU students.
At the meetings, SFC members are asked to help distribute to fellow students information about Grey shows and events—both in hard copy and via email listservs, departmental and club websites, and social-networking tools such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Tumblr. Members are invited to contribute posts—reporting on their experiences in the art world—to the Grey Art Gallery’s Tumblr blog. In past years, SFC members have organized a panel discussion in conjunction with a Grey show, created a visitor survey, organized a spring social, and led NYU gallery crawls.
